This man really has two left feet

A prosthetics “expert” gave an elderly patient two left feet by fitting the wrong artificial limb. Not only that but the foot was a size 8 instead of a size 9.

Did I mention that the doctor missed seeing the problems in two separate checkups? And that he is no longer employed at the “Smart disability centre.”  That’s really the name of the clinic too.

Crime tip: When robbing a bank be sure it’s open

A hapless bank robber fled empty handed when he turned up at the branch – on early closing day.

Baffled staff – taking part in a training session – watched in amusement as he hammered on the door with his gun demanding to be let in, say police in Kirchheim, Austria.

The would-be crook – who was caught on camera wearing his Barack Obama mask – eventually fled to his getaway car empty handed.

Second place in a “one horse race.”

Jennifer Brown, (UK) aged 62, a grandmother, was thrilled to win second prize in a baking contest until she found that her cake was the only entry.

She was awarded second place for her Victoria Sponge in the competition, reports the Mirror.

She was intrigued to find out which cake had beaten her to the top spot and it was then that she discovered the truth.

Organizers had spotted her sponge had rack marks from where it had been in the oven and decided it wasn’t up to the standards demanded for first place.
